COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first release in our Moveable Yeast series, Weedwacker is the result of our pitching Lawnmower wort (wort is the unfermented beer) with Bavarian Hefeweizen yeast. Weedwacker will be available draft only. This is a study in how different yeasts have different effects on beers. Note: As the base beer for this beer is a Kolsch, this beer will remain in the Kolsch style.

Pours hazy gold with a lasting white head. Aroma is yeast and faint citrus. Taste is citrus, some sweet maltiness, and some spice. Like a mild hefe. Very refreshing and good overall.

pour is a dirty pale yellow with some sentiment floating around and a thin white head. You can smell the kolch notes, sweet caramel and roasted nuts, faint Saison yeast and spice. Sweet citrus and orange peel. The taste is more simple and a touch empty. Fair Saison yeast, very light spice, almost none of the malt notes, coriander, orange peel. Highly carbonated, fairly dry, firm body.

kramer (6577) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Tap. Avenue Pub. Pours a cloudy yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is much more Hefe than Kolsch. Big fluffy yeast with light bubblegum and a touch of clove over bready pale malts. The flavor is spicy and very yeasty with great bubblegum notes and a light floral like hoppiness on the finish. Nice length to the finish for such a light beer. Medium bodied with a nice fluffy texture and fine fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice refreshing beer. Not really thought of as a Kolsh as far as my rate is concerned though. In that case it would be a pretty horrible Kolsch.

Slightly stale, clean aroma. Body of a koelsch with Belgian sensibilities-very floral for a koelsch, but mild-moderate on an absolute scale. Lingering banana on the tongue. Overall, not a classic koelsch, but not bad, either.

Lighter than the stouts I tend to favor, but still had some qualities that I liked. Not my favorite.

At a tasting, thanks beer_and_beyond, pours an hazy yellow with a nice head, aroma of bubblegum, olives and spices, flavor of bubblegum, apple, clove, lemon grass, medium bodied.

DSG (13906) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. As "Saint Arnold Centenni*ale Blonde Ale". Hazy yellow-ish golden color. Yeasty aroma with lots of fruity esters. Sweetish fruity flavor with light spiciness. Light-medium-bodied. A Kolsch?! Really?!

This beer has a Old Milwaukee appearance, yet it has some hints of Belgian Ale taste. I am not sure I could drink it all day but it might work in a pinch

Lawnmower isn’t my favorite Kolsch but I still like it better than this (apparently successful, based on its expanded availability) experiment. I’m not a purist who thinks a certain style need always be done the traditional way but in this case I find the Hefe yeast distracting from the crisp Kolsch base.
